Brandon Hicks hit a walkoff homer off Michael Kirkman in the bottom of the ninth as the A's edged the Rangers 4-3 on Wednesday.

A's manager Bob Melvin said Brandon Hicks will get some playing time against left-handed pitches.

Confirmation of sporadic playing time is enough to make Hicks worth a flier in deep AL-only fantasy leagues. Called up to the majors on Saturday, Hicks batted .272 with 13 homers and 48 RBI in 65 games at Triple-A Sacramento. Melvin said the majority of his playing time would come at shortstop, spelling Cliff Pennington, and that Hicks also gives the team a backup at first.
